Here's my new latest Gripe pretty small I think. But some Character names being harder to say then others.

Like for example "Gweyr" how do pronounce that also "Ailah"? They should put a pronunciation in the Wiki under each name.

placental mass in the eggshell, perhaps
No I get why it's there. When drawing humanoids the bellybutton is one of those things that we know should be there without ever thinking about why. feel free to pay it no mind, it's really not worth thiking about.

Well... the thing about belly buttons is that they come from having an umbilical cord, right? If so, that would imply the egg-laying races have a similar prenatal development process to the live-birthing races, which makes sense given that they're naturally capable of breeding with each other to produce fertile offspring and are thus the same species. My head-canon (and this applies to TiTS as well) is that pregnancies for egg-laying races goes mostly the same as for live-birthing races, only near the end, the placental fluids become much more nutrient-dense (acting as the equivalent of a yolk), the placenta calcifies (to form an eggshell-like structure) and the umbilical cord switches from using the mother's bloodstream to using the now nutrient-dense placental fluids.

Is it just me or do the kill options feel out of place? I don't want to sound ungrateful because getting to do some edgy stuff every once in a while is nice but they never feel like they have the necessary build-up for it or justification.

Yeah it'd be one thing if they were just for the imps considering they're just little rape machines, but not so much the rest. It's what causes the murderboners to come about from time to time here.

I tbh feel way more justified to kill Arona than I ever do to kill Sandre and Caera. Both are trying to assault and rape me, but only one of those are keeping a huge amount of slaves. S&C don't seem more evil than the Mino miners or Hobgoblins, so executing them just seem weird even for my paladin type. I would on the other hand appreciate an option to scare S&C so much they just leaves my characters that aren't interested in them alone, rather than have to outright kill them.

Let's see, KILLING!
Alyssa: Justified
Alraune: Not really, unless you don't ask her about her story.
Corrupted centaurs: Justified
Behemoth: Justified
Sandre and Caera: Not really
Imps: Text book definition of justified
Amalgam/Corrupted Dryad: Mercy killings
(I spare them, hoping they get help)
Wyld tree: Justified.
Elves in Dracia: Not really.
Gytha/Dragon Knight: Not really
Psion: Not really

I think I got them all, but if I missed a K event, let me know.

Yeah, like with the Elves in Rynquest, it's not like they are an honor-bound culture like in Game of Thrones or Vikings, so why am I executing them? It can't just be about them being tainted because it has long been established that tainted folks can be reasoned with and be made useful in some way. Or in the mushroom quest where I think the best example of missed potential in making ppl agonize over killing someone and whether it's mercy is the Mushroom Trio lady. The situation around her should have played up a bit more; imagine having your thoughts invaded constantly if you try to think you'd have no privacy in your own mind. Not to mention the nerve pain and horny.

I have Amalgam in my wayfort, have to admit I kinda forgotten where she came from.
I only usually kill Imps and the Behemoth. Not to bothered about murder in a porn game.
Who is Psion?

Just a quick question is The Storm Glaive worth fighting the Harpies for, or should I bring Agni with me.

I love that her nick name is is the same as a character from them video game "SMITE". Both of them use fire it's I just think that's great. If anyone here has played "SMITE" you'll know who I'm talking about.

Not really IMO. I tossed a Leanstone at them and blew them off the mountain, I thought that would just leave them start in a staggered position but it actually just outright defeats them if your Agility is good. No real regrets not getting it though, there are better options for the two-handed spellblade route, like the Spiraled Blade, Elthara's scythe, or the hammer in Rynquest.

I think after you beat and/or fuck them enough times they just give up and go home - literally. They just stay in their cave home for the rest of the game. From what I can tell the only reason there's a kill option is if you don't want to wait that long, or don't want to risk getting corruption by fucking them.

If you've had children with Zhara the Harpy Wingleader they'll let you past as well.

I could always just cheat and give to me through save editor. I just love weapons the cause storm or lightning damage.

Fire not really impressive especially if your a pyromaniac. But Lightning that only comes from one place. If can conjure that then no one can say "Oh your magic is all smoke and mirrors". It be more like "Shit you summoned lightning from the sky? Ok you the real deal". That might just be me though.

Too many dick girls, too many bitch boys, not enough real men.

Extreme lack of male content for those into males and it's getting a little tiresome at this point. I get the game is mainly aimed at straight males, but there are still gay men and straight women around. I'd like to see more content for them.

Not really a direct gripe I just don't want to make a new thread; is this game lagging like absolute fuck during combat for anyone else after recent patches?

I'm playing the client version on a laptop, with an i7 (2.3 ghz) and 16 GB RAM, Windows claims no more than 20-30 % of my resources is ever taken up, and as of maybe three updates ago whenever combat starts there's a second or two delay between clicking an icon and shit happening, like I press a spell button, 1 second delay, selector line to pick the target of my spell, click it, 1 second delay, and then it goes off. This is happening on my level 7 valkyrie thief (zero save edits) on both random encounters and boss encounters (which get closer to two second delay than 1), and it's happening right after rebooting the computer or game. It is borderline making the game unplayable because I keep accidentally hitting the wrong target because of the lags.

This!
I've been blaming my PC, but it seems it's not a "me" problem.

Currently playing v.0.6.6, and the input delay is brutal (up to 3 secs).

I am on 0.6.8, most recent, as I said it's been going on for a few patches now, and I likewise was not sure if it was a "me" problem or not.

Another subjective take: I feel like the unique weapon pool is very...I don't want to say shallow, but it's unnecessarily restrictive.
Example A - Bone Seax is "A defensive knife carved from the bone of some gigantic animal inscribed with runes along its hilt." why can't I duel wield this knife with another weapon?
Example B - Skypiecer has THROWN, BLADED, UNIQUE for its traits, can't duel wield it for shit for some reason
I remember seeing Jstar requesting the ability to two-hand a one-hand weapon for benefits which seems useful. If we aren't going to be able to mix and match, there should at least be at least one or two combos they should have that don't involve a shield or passive equipment. Like, Dawnblade & SanGlade, or if weapons/abilities/items are to be nerfed at least give them another ability/stat/unique benefit that works with the role it was intended for.

Quick peeve: Captain's Greatsword - "A thin chain hangs from the hilt, although the charms that should be attached to it appear to have gone missing." is this ever getting completed or did I miss something?
Lureling's Eye - I feel like the description should be rewritten because it's misleading and not in a good way "One of the lureling's trio of beady white eyes, its core as dark as the void between the spheres save for the starry light within, much like an anglerfish's lure. According to Tollus' notes on the abyssal beast, it sheds these to distract enemies like a lizard sheds its tail, but you get the gut feeling there's more to it than that... how are you supposed to put this thing on? Is it really on, or are you just imagining things?" when equipped it gets the generic description in Appearance but if you hit below corruption requirement it pops out of the PCs head. Is it a third eye or a helmet?

I have a similar long-standing issue with tentacle dicks; the TF event and appearance description say you should be able to reshape them at will, even going with no dick at all, or combining them into one, or make them bigger or smaller, but this is never actually used in game, most events seem to think you are multi-dicked and so only one of the tentacles can be used for anything. Either the TF and Appearance screen needs to be changed, or the sex tags needs to be changed. I would vastly prefer the latter for the record, having an option that's just always going to fit and be exactly the perfect size for any encounter would be... so fucking nice.

I've realized that the specific problem is a skill issue on the writers' side for not utilizing it. Then again writing tentacle activities for every scene would be tiring but they aren't being used like how they are described.

Then tentacle should just be removed if it's not going to be actually utilized because none of the writers like it. Change the Effigy verison to just a green dick, and remove the tentacle evolution of demon dick, leaving double-dick the final stage of Incubus Cum. It's the half-arsing of it that's just annoying me. As a swamp goblin once said, Do, or Do Not; there is no Try.
